The Jones Beach Energy & Nature Center is a pioneering facility exploring how energy consumption shapes the natural environment.

Located on the West End of Long Island's iconic Jones Beach State Park, the Center activates the coastal landscape as a living example of these relationships. The net-zero building models how architecture, design, and technology can adapt to a changing environment to meet our energy needs.

Through dynamic and accessible indoor and outdoor exhibits, educational programming, and public events, the Center showcases ways visitors can become conscientious environmental stewards and smart energy consumers.

For more information and to plan your visit:  

When visiting take advantage of the two free mobile tours that can guide you as you explore the Center:
A playful introduction to the exhibits (15 minutes) and a more advanced tour of the net-zero energy features of this building (30 minutes).
Each tour is also available in ASL and English-language audio descriptions.
